All information on HowTo-Outlook.com is freely accessible without any need to log on. There are 2 points at which we collect information from you;
- You sign yourself up to our mailing list.
- Usage of the website for statistic purposes.
The mailing list for our newsletter is hosted at Hosting.nl in the Netherlands. The list is protected against abuse (newsletters can only be sent out after explicit approval of the mailing list owner which is Robert Sparnaaij, owner and founder of HowTo-Outlook.com).
The mailing list will never be made available to any third parties. Each outgoing email to the mailing list also contains information on how to unsubscribe. Once unsubscribed, your email address will be completely removed from our server; we do not keep a list of previously subscribed addresses.
As any professional website, HowTo-Outlook.com collects statistics about website usage in order to improve the usage of the website and provide content which is most relevant to you. In addition, these statistics can be used to report to any sponsors.
All of the information which is collected and reported remains completely anonymous; The data collected cannot be traced back to a single individual.
Cookies are small text files which are automatically generated and placed on your computer by your Internet browser and contain session information.
HowTo-Outlook.com itself does not place any cookies on your computer but does use third party services which can create cookies on your computer when visiting HowTo-Outlook.com.
The main service that does this is Google Analytics, a service from Google Inc. (“Google”) to generate the aforementioned statistics reports.
Detailed instructions about their data practices can be found here; Safeguarding your data – Analytics Help (google.com)
We also use Google AdSense, another service from Google Inc. (“Google”), to allow people to advertise on HowTo-Outlook.com.
Your collected personal data, by Google, will be used for personalization of ads and that cookies may be used for personalized and non-personalized advertising.
Google’s data usage policy, including several ways to opt out, can be found here. The main settings can be controlled via; Ad Settings.
Other services that could (but not necessarily) do this are from affiliate programs that we participate in like MyCommerce. This helps them to trace any sales that might have been generated from HowTo-Outlook.com for which we are credited.
These links all start with https://addins.howto-outlook.com/ and require you to click on it yourself before a cookie can be placed. You’ll then be redirected to a website that is not controlled by HowTo-Outlook.com.
It is this 3rd party site, and not our outgoing link, that might place a cookie.
You can configure your browser to not allow any cookies or to be warned when a cookie is placed on your system.

Although this will not affect your browsing experience when visiting HowTo-Outlook.com, we do politely ask not to do this as the statistics collected and the (small) revenue stream generated from the affiliate programs we participate in, help us to continue to maintain and host the site for you and we want to thank you for that.
